Name nerds - where can I find lists?

I'm not having a baby, but am naming fictional characters. Girls are easy but men are tough (fnar). Is there a source for top-50 names from the last 30 years in the UK? I've googled until my fingers have almost dropped off and am sure there must be a definitive source. Can anyone help?

This site has lists of popular names for different years, but not a definitive list for the last 30 years. Hope it's of use though:

blush Posting the link as an actual link would be useful, wouldn't it?? Sorry, I'll try again:
